Default font in the Visual Editor has changed to sans-serif

The default font for the visual editor in trunk has recently changed from a Georgia stack to sans-serif. I believe this is a regression and I was able to track it down to the following changeset [19982]

This may be hard to see on a stock install of trunk running Twenty Eleven. The reason for this is that Twenty Eleven provides a custom stylesheet for the Visual Editor. To see what I am talking about, you will need to install a theme that has no editor stylesheet.

Here is what text in the Visual Editor looks like in 3.3.1 https://img.skitch.com/20120306-mit6esawu36pyii8g8us5brh5a.png

Here is what test looks like in the latest trunk: https://img.skitch.com/20120306-8bn6jtui47n5xbym6fyd2pd16h.png

Removing the font styles from the body element in wp_theme/content.css seems to do the trick. Not sure if this is the best approach. Patch to follow.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

This bit was a left-over from testing a better default font that would work well in all languages when the theme doesn't overwrite the fonts through editor-style.css. Opened #20186 for that.
